National Dental Hygiene Month

When we think of the month of October, most of us automatically think of Breast Cancer Awareness. However, did you know that October is also National Dental Hygiene Month? This October, the American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA) and the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company are partnering to raise public awareness about good oral health. The Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company is the maker of Orbit sugar free gum. This is the fifth consecutive year that they have partnered with the ADHA to sponsor National Dental Hygiene Awareness Month.

This national campaign focuses on four different components of good oral hygiene: brushing teeth twice daily, flossing teeth daily, rinsing with mouthwash and chewing sugar-free gum. The 2014 National Dental Hygiene Month kicked off with a national radio media tour highlighting the importance of proper dental hygiene. This media tour featured the current ADHA President, Kelli Swanson Jaecks, MA, RDH. The Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company Foundation is also partnering with the ADHA Institute for Oral Health (IOH) to offer community service grants of $2,500 or $5,000 to applicants who are interested in projects intended to improve their community’s oral health. They are also running contests on Facebook and other social media sites.

You can participate in this awareness campaign by visiting your dentist and examining your own oral hygiene and the oral hygiene of those in your family. If you would like to get more information about oral health, you can visit the ADHA website at www.ADHA.org and click on the Resources tab.

I had my first visit, for a routine cleaning. I am very impressed with the ease of scheduling an appointment, the convenience of appointments outside of ""regular"" business hours, the friendly staff and the thoroughness of the examination and cleaning procedure. Dr. Park was careful, compassionate, a good listener, and explained a lot about my teeth and her recommendations to care for my dental health moving forward. I am pleased and I look forward to being a long-term patient! Thanks Green Dental of Alexandria!

Gold Stars on all fronts. The office is spotless, gives off a great vibe and has quiet soothing classical music playing. The front desk people are very warm and go above and beyond. Televisions are placed above the chairs so you can relax and watch TV while they work away under the hood. Dr. Park is very kind, thorough, and addressed all my concerns and questions.
Sure cleanings hurt a bit, but I actually look forward to them now!

Best dental experience I've had in a long time. The reception/billing staff was friendly and helpful. The dental hygienists were gentle and knowledgeable. Dr Park was kind, thorough, and answered all of my questions. I'll be back!

Dr. Park has a wonderful manner with her patients! I feel very fortunate to have her as my dentist. Her hygienists and office staff are very competent and kind. I would go nowhere else.

I just had my first appointment at Green Dental and I couldn't be happier with their service. I tend to be nervous when going to the dentist, but all of the staff were very welcoming and nice. The exam chair massages your back as you're getting your cleaning and there's a television on the ceiling to distract you from dental work. The cleaning and evaluation was very gentle. Thanks, Green Dental!

I've been a patient for 3.5 years. Today I got a tooth pulled. I am not proud of that. Dr. Park gave me options today that included allowing her to pull it or go see an Oral Surgeon. There was no way I was leaving her office when I trust her so much. I was nervous but I trust her more than anyone I've ever trusted to complete dental work. I am very found of Dr. Park and how caring and gentle her care is with each patient. I was equally impressed when I walked into her office today. Dr. Park was personally calling a patient just to see how he was doing after a visit. I joked with her about that .... what Dr. calls just to check on you anymore. Very nice. Very much appreciated.

I picked this because it was close and was impressed with the polite professionalism I encountered. Loved that I did not have to wait, but also loved the massage chair to relax tired back muscles. I felt the cost of procedures was a little on the high side...

One of the best dental clinics I've been to thus far. I love the fact that they give an incentive (free tooth whitening) for good dental hygiene and their service is impeccable. I'm happy they actually went over the x-rays and pictures they took of my teeth to give more knowledge of what they look for in x-rays. I'm so happy I found them!
